Hot Seconds are a Brooklyn, New York-based indie-rock outfit formed in 2007. Citing a wide array of Brit-pop/rock influences, their sound manages to meld the urgency/street-smart storytelling of The Clash, the aural collage/majestic grandeur of Spiritualized as well as the raw, funked-up, immediacy of Primal Scream, tied together with a love of all things Manchester. UK-born singer/songwriter James Love and composer/producer Eran Westwood, whose credits include, among others, seminal industrial godfathers Front 242 and 90\'s New York City band Spill, became acquainted through a chance meeting and, in discovering their mutual passion for Brit pre/post-punk/rock, set out to work on a few songs for a \'project\' EP. Far surpassing their expectations and delighted with the fruits of said efforts, it was decided to develop/re-envision the project and the duo decided to put a full band together in order to translate these songs live. Soon thereafter, Ian Hudgins was tapped to man the drums, along with veteran NYC bassist/guitarist Johnny McNabb and jack-of-all-trades Marcel Simoneau and Hot Seconds was born.
